(Prog) Veteran filmmaker John Carpenter has slammed Rob Zombie, calling him a "piece of sh*t" during an interview with film students. Zombie directed a remake of Carpenter's 1978 horror movie Halloween in 2007 - but Carpenter says claims the shock rocker made in documentary Halloween: The Inside Story that he was "very cold" towards the singer simply aren't true.

In a video clip which has now been deleted, Carpenter says (via The Guardian): "He lied about me. He said that I was very cold to him when he told me that he was going to make Halloween. Nothing could be further from the truth.

"I said, 'Make it your own movie, man. This is yours now. Don't worry about me.' I was incredibly supportive. Why that piece of sh*t lied, I don't know. He had no reason to. Why did he do it?"

Despite insisting he was never cold to Zombie, Carpenter does go on to dismiss Zombie's take on central character Michael Myers. He says: "I thought that he took away the mystique of the story by explaining too much about Myers." Read more here.
